Title: Potter Wentnor
Post by: fionah1973 on Friday 31 July 15 23:40 BST (UK)

I have today gained the marriage certificate for Thomas Potter born 1805 

He married in 1830 in Wentnor church but Mary died 1850. He remarried in 1864 to Eluzabeth hill both widows

The certificate shows Jonathan Potter as father occupation Weaver

I would appreciate any help on Thomas baptism to gain the mothers name and any more information on Jonathan

Thank you advance fiona

Hi Fiona,

I have also left a reply on your Hertfordshire post with some detail, before I read this one.

I am trying to prove wether my ancestor, Jane Potter from The Bog Wentnor, was the daughter of Thomas Potter and Mary or Richard Potter and Ann.  Both families Lead Miners at The Bog 1841 onwards.

I have found a record of Richard Potter baptised 13 May 1810 in Wentnor to Jonathan Potter and Jane.

This could well be the same Jonathan and Jane mentioned here at Hyssington (about 5 miles from The Bog). So Thomas and Richard could be bothers.
